Be Careful of My Data Manager App

It is a great app to keep one updated on data usage for free. But recently they added this new feature which enables the app to track app data usage by going through some VPN, today my wife said her data plan exceeded limit by 0.5 GB, what a shock, yesterday used only 800+ MB today overshot by 500+ MB.

Anyway lucky I never turn on the VPN thing, yesterday I turned on for wife, didn't think it would eat up so much data so fast.

So if you use My Data Manager app, do not turn on the VPN, want to track data usage actually iOS also can track, see I hand itchy go and turn on, now have to pay extra money as a lesson.

Lucky Starhub cap data usage to $10.70 per GB, heng ah, if not count by their 0.0107 cents per KB it will be $50+!

iOS11 Looks Stylo

Yesterday I help to troubleshoot wife's iphone because of apple id issue, saw a very different interface, end up is because she updated to iOS11, not sure how she did though, my iphone never prompt me to update.

Now I plug in to computer, connected to itunes then it prompted me to download and install, file size 2.47 GB. Any problem with iphone just plug in to itunes, it always save the day.

iOS11 feels more smooth and clean, noticed some new features, haven't fully explore yet but now the space storage have more options, can list down by attachment and delete, this is very useful instead of going through each message. The control centre also seems more customizable.

Deliver Food by Walking?

Source

They actually call it UberEATS for Walkers which is super obvious lol, at first thought it's a stupid joke but it's real, searched online and found quite a number of blogs with people really doing it, even got news report on it.

Seems like it is something Uber started this year, they pay people to pick up and deliver food on foot. Looking at the information so far, their app will try to match "delivery partners" which is the person doing delivery to a close pick up location and a close delivery location.

One trip is like $5 to $6, I wonder if there is anyone who do it full-time, if do 10 trips a day $50-$60 also not bad, but wonder if there is enough demand for delivery, that's why need more lazy people to support this market, seems like laziness is also a good thing for business lol. Or maybe some people busy until cannot go out to eat, for me if really so busy I just don't eat, no mood how to eat.

Maybe after I quit my shit job I can try this.

Did Something Crazy Today

Today got so fed up with work I sent my boss resignation notice, told him my last day of work is 17 Oct because 18 Oct is public holiday. Now he is on overseas leave, I think he will probably get a shock when he see my email lol.

The trigger point is an email from my boss's boss, because my boss is on leave so B2 have to cover him. B2 complimented me for "taking ownership of the issue", which he was referring to our systems slowness since last week.

Even though it is a compliment, deep down I thinking kan nin na why am I the only person to take ownership of the issue, the slowness does not just affect my system, it also affects another system, and I am supposed to take charge and deal with all the shit myself, wtf right. Other people have deadlines, as if I don't have? This is not the first time, there is a limit to how much shit a person can take, I don't know how to quantify but I guess this is it.

Well to be fair at least B2 was present during all the big meetings, but only him and me, users pressed him for hourly updates, he no choice arrow me, then I no choice have to do all the shit.

The word "ownership" really got me thinking, seems like whenever there is issue, nobody in our team want to take ownership, like to say don't know, or push to another person, or take forever to follow-up, in the end reach the really jia lat stage then ask me to solve. If I leave the whole team game over. I keep telling them if one day I'm not around then how, nobody listen, I also tired of repeating.

Then experience and skills another big problem, some work 2-3 years but still as if never learn anything, a lot of things still don't know have to ask me, I mean as a professional get $3k to $4k salary it is your duty to take initiative to find out, not as if we don't have internet, go fucking google, or just use your brain to think, difficult? Sometimes feel as if my workplace is a fucking kindergarten.

Attitude another thing, most of the time I feel as if I am the only person who feels any urgency, got this guy he just play with his phone during office hours, or simply just doze off, when he got like so many things I really need him to follow-up. I remember once where he dozed off during a meeting with key users, imagine the shock I got. I mean really, you call yourself a professional?

Really give up.

Handyman Came to My House

Previously mentioned that my kitchen is ugly, I booked an appointment with singaporehandyman.com, they never confirm but came anyway, think their office cock up.

So this morning two guys suddenly appeared, both were very polite and professional. In less than 15 minutes they did the measurements, took photos, I asked for two quotes, one is to replace the whole table top and the sink but the whole middle piece of wood also have to remove. Another option is to just replace the sink and the broken door and put silicone to the leaks.

Just to highlight that have to pay $25 for the site measurement, but later can refund if I accept their quotation.

Monday they send me the quotes then see how.
